It's Go Time

November 30, 2015

In a fit of curiosity I’ve re-written this site in Go. Having got more than a little sick of NodeJs, it’s tendency to croak at the slightest thing and the pyramid of death I thought it’d be nice to use something a little more robust. Among the benefits so far are:

  • Cleaner codebase
  • Smaller memory footprint (5x smaller)
  • Cleaner package support
  • Better build and development tools

I’ve also discovered Vim Bootstrap recently and it’s a godsend. It really makes setting up a good .vimrc quick and easy.

Next up I’m going to port several work projects from Node to Go to leverage some of dat sweet, sweet concurrency.
